This second edition takes account of the important changes that have swept the field since the end of the Cold War, including rapid growth and change in commercial space-launch services, increasingly important issues of international trade in space-related goods and services, the expansion of space-based communications services, and the move to rethink -and perhaps rewrite- the Moon Treaty. Extensive excperts from major works in the field provide a sense of the many different interests and schools of thought that are shaping space policy- from the "New International Economic Order" writers of the Third World, whose theories were embodied in the Moon Treaty, to the free enterprise space capitalists of the United States, who have managed to create and American commercial space-launch industry.
The text provides penetrating original insights into current problems such as unfair trade in satellite launch services and ballistic missile proliferation and considers such future areas of conflict as allocation of space resources.
"Outer space: problems of law and policy" is ideal both as a text in space law and as an educational tool for interested practitioners and nonlawyers alike, students of international affairs will find it useful as a case study in the impact of changing technologies on disputes over resources and power.
